Marc Jacobs Serves Up Grey Gardens Realness

Christian Allaire

The 1975 documentary Grey Gardens takes on a whole new meaning in the current climate. If you haven’t seen the cult-classic work, it follows two eccentric women—Edie Bouvier Beale and her mother, Edith—who are relatives of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. The pair live in a decrepit mansion in East Hampton, and despite being reclusive and rarely leaving their deteriorating home, they exemplify a certain bygone glamour, swaddling themselves in fur coats and glamorous headscarves.

The art of dressing up to stay home is especially resonant right now, as many of us continue to shelter in place. Marc Jacobs has been embracing this spirit with gusto over the past several weeks. He regularly shares photos of his wildly imaginative looks on Instagram, decking himself out in the latest Prada or Celine pieces, and always finishing it all off with his favorite Rick Owens platforms. And just yesterday, the designer uploaded his very own approach to Beale style, and it’s utterly fabulous.

Hashtagging his photos “gaygardens,” Jacobs channelled Little Edie Beale with his take on her signature pieces. He wore a leopard print coat with a pearl necklace, colorful headscarf, retro shades, and even a mask for protection. Jacobs then turned to his followers with the following question: “Do you think I’ve lost my mind?” Call it insanely good.
